Can recommend this company. I had the EPC within a few hours of Sam's visit. Easy to deal with. Thank you. Will hold your details for the future.
Fantastic service from Sam and his team! Very efficient in getting to us in the timescale we needed. Can’t recommend this company enough and will definitely use them again for some of our other properties. Thanks Focus 360 Energy Ltd
Very efficient, good communication, good price, personal service. I'd definitely recommend Sam over the faceless 'middle men businesses' for EPC certificates even if they are (v slightly) cheaper. He's also organising electricity checks for me.
Really fast, friendly and accommodating. I needed the EPC urgently to complete my house sale and this company took care of everything very efficiently. Also seem to be very reasonably priced compared to other companies I spoke to.

What is a commercial EPC – Energy Performance Certificate?
The certificate records the energy efficiency of your building and displays the rating on a graph from A-G.
The best result you can achieve is an A banding and the lowest being G. The rating graph is similar to the labels you see attached to new appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines.
Throughout the UK Energy performance certificates are produced by using standard methods and energy assumptions which allows buildings to be compared with another fairly. By doing this it allows owners, prospective buyers or tenants to view the projected energy consumption and carbon ratings over a yearly basis, so they can consider the overall energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their investment or living expenses.
All Energy performance certificates are accompanied with a Recommendations Report which outlines cost-effective measures that can be put in place to improve the overall energy efficiency rating of a given property. a loft space or to upgrade single glazed area’s to double glazing.
The energy performance certificate is important as more than 50 percent of UK’s energy consumption and carbon emissions are produced by the way that we light, heat and generally use buildings. Relatively small changes such as installing low energy or LED lighting in all outlets of a building can have a profound effect on energy consumption.
- A 0 – 25

Commercial EPC FAQs
When is an Energy performance certificate required?
Your property’s EPC needs to be available to potential buyers as soon as you start to market your property for sale or rent. EPC Certificates became a regulatory requirement in April 2008. You must get an approved Commercial Energy assessor to produce the Commercial EPC in Bristol.
Commercial EPC Certificates are a requirement on all commercial properties, that are either being sold, built, or rented, and must be provided to a prospective buyer or tenant free of charge.
Are there any cases whereby my building may be exempt?
The answer is yes! The following situations deem your property exempt.
- Some listed buildings
- Building due for demolition resulting in site due for redevelopment
- Building to be sold or rented out with vacant possession
- Places of worship
- Industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings that have a low energy demand.
- Stand-alone commercial buildings with a total useful floor space of less than 50m².
What are the penalties for not having an EPC?
The penalty for not having a valid commercial energy performance certificate available to a prospective buyer or tenant is usually fixed £750.00. However, 12.5 percent of the rateable value of the building can also be charged. Penalties that can be applied under this formula can range from £500 and are capped at £5,000
When do I pay for my survey?
You do not pay anything until the survey is has been fully carried out and that you are happy with the service. Invoices will be issues at this point.
What is your Energy Performance Certificate process?
Upon arrival to the property the energy assessor will introduce themselves and explain the process and carryout out a health & safety risk assessment internally/externally for safety purposes.
The assessor will require access to all areas of the building
The assessor will draw a sketch plan of the overall floor area of the property. Once this is done he will collect information about the building. This will include plans, dimensions of the building, its purpose, the number of floors, the amount and type of glazing (i.e. single or double glazing), the heating systems and the fuel used.
Please note that we respect your property at all times and will ensure that it will be left as it was before we attended for our survey.
